The emergency solution turns out to be the optimum.

B.K , 07.10.2018
After the first test last week I also write my own review ...
The subwoofer was used with the TheBox Pro Agate 206 with the T. Amp E400 power amp. To sound was a large double garage in Dicolautstärke with all kinds of music (punk rock, house, EDM, Hardstyle, rap).

I was looking for an active subwoofer that is small, light and yet powerful. Accordingly, a 12 incher was considered.
The Superlux was not really my first choice. I was limited to the dB Technologies SUB 612, EV ZXA1 or the TheBox Pyrite 112.
Due to lack of funds, these subwoofers were unfortunately no longer in there.
After some time I finally decided to order the Superlux. Especially with the data by the way are exactly the same as in the ZXA1 Sub of ElectroVoice (also a direct radiator and no badpass as described on the page) and somehow because of my previous speakers whose ratings are far apart.

After two days of shipping the sub came to me, packed very well but without instructions. Only the sub itself and a power cord are included.
First, I noticed the processing, which surprised me very positively. Especially at this price. There are no unsightly edges, unpainted areas or poorly sealed joints on the final stage module. Therefore full points!

Euphoric I carried the sub in my hobby room. This was very pleasant with the low weight and the well-placed handles on the side. For rough floors, tiles or parquet, the Sub has rubber feet. So he does not run away during the operation. Therefore full points!

Very nice at the price, I find the opportunity to drive in with a stereo signal in the sub. Also a switch to reverse the phase and a switch to raise the lower frequencies is there. And of course a gain control. I would miss an active crossover to further relieve the top parts. Can I breathe away at the price. Therefore 4 out of 5 points!

At the first soundcheck I was a bit disappointed. The sub sounded a bit hollow / uninsulated. I do not quite buy the draft of 44 Hz. I would rather tend to 60 Hz. Even the "low-end boost" switch did not bring any outstanding change. So long until I found out that the subwoofer likes to be positioned in a corner of the room.
A few days later, the first proper use was in the double garage. Having set up the subwoofer in the corner and helped the low bass with Equalizer APO, the end result was really impressive!
Really a lot of pressure, very low-level, no clattering or clattering into the limiter, which starts completely unnoticed and without a crack. Also, there is no fan that makes noise and still the power amp remains cool.
For sound reinforcement for 50 people with volume to dance and celebrate just awesome.

Conclusion:
For almost 300 euros you get a very powerful small subwoofer with good features and a small deficit in the sound. So I have to give him only 3 points in the Sound category. But in a few steps and how to make a real bass wonder out of it.
I will definitely not return it and might even have annoyed me for having paid more for the EV ZXA1 sub 200 euros.

So what is that?

Mario719, 01.02.2017
As a supplement to my RCF tops for mini-gigs, I wanted to buy a low-priced 12-bass bass, which can easily be stowed away in the car! This configuration I need maybe 2 or 3 times a year, with the other gigs are then 15 (RCF) with it.
Have me now this Superlux and an agate 112 Sub A ordered and compared with each other. In short: I find it a joke, what the customer gets there on the ears! The bass is something of undefined - it's just noise and drones! So a bass reproduction I had not heard yet. I have now for over 30 years with PA systems to do but something I really had not yet!
Anders the agate: Clean, defined basses - compliment! This will work!
Quick to the conclusion: The Superlux went right back into the box and of course back to Thomann!
Am still shocked - somehow also from the positive evaluations of my previous speakers ...
